Language learing disabilities examined at NSSLHA conference

Minot State University's chapter of the National Students Speech Language Hearing Association is holding its 2014 spring conference Friday (April 4) in the Conference Center (Student Center, third floor), from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The keynote speaker is Anne Whitney, a speech-language pathologist and educator at University of Colorado, Boulder.

“For more than 20 years, the MSU chapter of NSSLHA has held conferences. The students plan, organize and execute a nationally renowned conference, which is attended not only by MSU students, faculty and staff, but also by practicing speech-language pathologists from Montana, South Dakota, Minnesota, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,” said Lesley Magnus, associate professor of communication disorders.

This year, the emphasis is on language learning disabilities. Whitney will present “Last Minute, Right on Time! Addressing Adolescent Literacy Needs.”

On-site registration is $100. The conference is free to all MSU students, faculty and staff.
